Are you aware of Tab Napping?

Hello, 

 

I've seen some references to 'tab napping' where a 'dormant' tab can be hijacked and the page replaced with a fake log-in for a bank etc.

for example you go on a website Open the page, then open another tab and within 5 secs the tab is replaced by an image of a gmail login screen, and the tab icon changes to the gmail icon . The back button is still greyed out...

Is this a 'live' threat? Anyone know anything about this?

 

Thank You
